Hello. I want to export/ backup my iCloud library to an external harddisk.
My iCloud library is larger than the computer storage so to start syncing in the Photos app, I had to choose “optimized pictures”. I would want the originals, but then syncing couldn’t be done.
Now I want to “export originals” to backup the actual size stored in iCloud, onto my external harddisk. I mark all inn Photos and start export.
After this some pictures were exported to the external harddisk, but a pop up message said that a lot of pictures were not exported “because the files does not exist”. I guess this would be because only some pictures are downloaded to the Photos app as originals, and some optimized storage.
How can I get a backup of my iCloud on an external disc, so that I can delete them from the iCloud online?
Going through the web page iCloud.com only lets me download single files, or hold cmd and mark out each photo. This will take too much time.
